Add IRD is a function of X9Assist Unlimited and is used to add individual items to an IRD List which can then be subsequently reviewed and printed. User selected items are added to a filter list which is our general purpose facility to describe a subset of items within the current x9 file. Items within the filter list can be browsed to confirm that all desired items have been selected. Items can be both added or removed from the list as necessary. Once the content of an IRD list has been confirmed, the list can then be used for more advanced functions such as printing or x9 file creation.
Add IRD allows items to be selected and added at either the item or bundle level. Multiple items can be selected at a time by holding down the CTRL key and using the mouse to then select (highlight) the item within the tree. You can build the IRD item list through a series of selections. This allows you to add items to the IRD list from various points within the current x9 file.
Adding Items to the IRD List
The Add IRD panel allows you to add individual items to the IRD List. This process consists of identifying the IRD creator for each item as well as a return reason, both of which are needed for the IRD formatting process. The number of remaining items to be dispositioned is displayed on the action line in the lower left corner. Buttons on the action panel are used to either apply (add) or apply all items to the accumulated IRD print list. The process continues for all remaining items within the list. The IRD print list will appear as a filtered tab and can be viewed during the ongoing process of adding items. You can use the filter tab to launch to any given item or alternatively remove items that were added in error.
Using the IRD List to Print Item Images
Once your list is finalized and confirmed, it can then be used as a filter for other X9Assist tools including Print Images, which can print check images in various page layouts (either system or user defined). A common use is to format and then print item images to a MICR printer. X9Assist includes “Letter 3 x 1 IRD Print” which is a system defined print format for IRDs and should be applicable to most user environments. It is important to note that this print format can be adjusted based on your check template and specific printer environment.
